Disney Bringing TRON: UPRISING Animated Series to Television

Disney’s long awaited sequel Tron Legacy hitting theaters next  month, but if you're one of those old school 1980s fans that cannot get enough Tron then you are going to be real, real happy.   Variety reports Disney XD has ordered Tron: Uprising an animated series being developed for release in the summer of 2012. Charlie Bean (Samurai Jack) will executive produce and direct the series 20 and Tron Legacy writers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will serve as consulting producers.

Heading into the world of Tron and lending their voices to the animated series will be Elijah Wood (Everything is Illuminated), Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage), Mandy Moore (Tangled), Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee’s Playhouse), Lance Henriksen (Cyrus) and Bruce Boxleitner reprising his franchise role as Tron.

In September, it was announced that the original Tron: Uprising would be a ten part mini-series in which a young program named Beck stands up against an evil regime headed by Clu who obtains his status after the defeat of Tron, the security watchdog program.

However, Collider reports that information is not true and Tron: Uprising is completely independent of that mini-series which will air in the fall of 2011. We've got a sh#t load of Tron to look forward to after Tron Legacy hits theaters on December 17th.
